Wildfire Community Preparedness Day

Wildfire Educators, Stakeholders and Leaders,

This year’s national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is Saturday, May 2, 2015. To assist in local projects being implemented, sixty-five $500 project funding awards will be provided through generous support from State Farm. The deadline to apply is Thursday, March 5, at 11:59pm ET - the short application is easy to complete and only takes a few minutes. Details available in Fire Break and on WildfirePrepDay.org.

A wide-range of free materials can be accessed on the site’s Resources Page. Available options include: flyers, postcards, logos, web and email banners and Facebook/Twitter profile photo images. Flyers and postcards are available in multiple formats including a customizable version for local events/projects. Attached is a pdf of the flyer for easy sharing. Add the web banner to your site and encourage projects and participation.

Last year, activities were completed by individuals, neighborhoods and community groups working to reduce their wildfire risk and make their communities a safer place to live.  

Contact NFPA if you have questions or need additional information.
